McKinley Health Center | Predicting Your Cardiorespiratory Fitness Level.

There are a number of ways to measure cardiorespiratory fitness. A quick and easy method is to use field tests that involve walking or running a certain distance in a given time. The advantage of field tests is that little equipment is needed. These tests require maximal effort, therefore may not be appropriate for sedentary individuals at increased risk for cardiovascular and musculoskeletal complications.
